This film, unlike other films with frantic levels of politically-incorrect humor, such as Airplane! or Kentucky Fried Movie, is more than just shrewdly clever gross-out jokes that appeal to us on a base level; it is a scathingly sharp satirical piece about the stupidity of a nuclear war and the idiocy of those stupid enough to start one.  The movie is insanely funny, but somehow ends up leaving you with Stanley Kubrick's trademark feeling of emptiness and confusion.   Keep your eyes open for Peter Sellers; he puts on the acting jobs (that's not a typo) of his career.

I'd give it 9 Juicy squirts out of a possible 10
